Usually that's fine. Most font licenses let you alter them in the artwork you are creating. Some let you alter the font file itself for internal use. Some let you alter the font file itself and re-distribute it (usually open source ones). But it all depends on the license. Read the license.

Hobo, designed as early as 1910, is a no-descender font: Caveat: with its design heavily influenced by the Art Nouveau style of the 1890s-1920s, it is not useful for general application.

It seems that single story "a"'s are rare in serif typefaces except for italic versions. Most sans serifs also use double story "a"'s except for geometric typefaces (which are usually used for display). At text sizes the single story "a" can appear too similar to an "o" and break the fluidity of reading.

According to WhatTheFont, it looks like a modified version of Latinum or Calligri are about as close as you'll get.

If you're concerned with readability and distinct letter forms, and not so much with style, then the Dyslexia font (and others like it) might be worth considering. http://www.dyslexiefont.com/en/dyslexia-font/

Are there scientific experiments, measurements on these? Yes! But... They are usually inconclusive use an incredibly small sample of users are overly narrow in scope tend to lack a lot of context tend to ignore all the other aspects that go in to readability So, I wouldn't put much weight into it at least on the broad "what is the best typeface" ...

Very good question. And a very complex one. I just make some general statements. 1) Serif letters on printed media are easier to read with small line height spacing. (probably too on a high definition device) Proportionally sans serif fonts need more line height so the eye can keep track of the line its reading. The main reason is that the serif helps ...

There is no general answer for this but typically bold, capitalization or even all caps, and a color change would be a good starting point. We've worked hard to ensure Delightful Apple Cake is the best pre-packaged apple cake available. Capitalization alone makes it more apparent We've worked hard to ensure Delightful Apple Cake is the best ...

In Adobe Illustrator the best way to fake an Italic, on a sans-serif font, is to Shear as others have said but also then reduce the kerning. I find for most sans-serif fonts a 10degree horizontal shear, and -10 kerning is very very close to what an Italic would be. Again for sans-serif fonts. Here's an example using Source Sans Pro and Arial. Top is the ...

I am quite a newbie at Ai so came to the thread looking for answers to the same question. I also couldn't be bothered looking for THE font as I just wanted to slant the font I had already picked. I found out that if you type your text in MS Word and "italicise" it you can copy and paste it into Ai and it keeps its shape. Ai doesn't recognise what font it is ...

This happens when a selection of text containing glyphs from the extended set of a Unicode font is converted to a non-Unicode font. The font you're using simply doesn't have that glyph.

There is an app for that: WhatTheFont Mobile. You can take a new photo or select one from your local "camera roll", select the area to be recognized, and after selecting the letters it contacts WTF and reports the results back. Taking a snapshot of any running app is done by holding down the Home button and then clicking the Sleep button once. A camera ...

It can also be caused by the trap setting of images within the document. Sometimes with thin lined fonts indesign will automatically bold the fonts so that they do not have overlayed images bleed into the font making it unrecognizable. This happens even if the image isn't near the fonts. Set the trap settings within photoshop and look to see if they are set ...

Typefaces need to be formatted to tell the programs using them which font in the set is Regular, or which is Bold, or which is Italic, or which is Bold + Italic. Not all typefaces are formatted this way. If the font you are using in InDesign does not allow the shortcut, it usually means that the typeface has not "told" InDesign which font in the typeface ...

I personally love Open Sans. I've used it for a number of different projects and found it great to work with. Glyph and language support is exceptional, readability is great even at small sizes, and I could go on. Be advised that Google recently changed the name to Noto for some reason. Webly Sleek is also very similar to Segoe, and has good glyph support. ...

Some additional remarks: Works that have been created in the 19th century can still be realistically copyrightable, because the relevant date in many copyright laws, in particular the German one, is the death of the creator. As of now, a work enters the public domain after 70 full calendar years have passed since the creator’s death. So if the creator died ...

In the US, design patents are issued for a maximum of 14 years. Thereafter, the designs are public domain. Other countries have similar laws and negotiate international agreements. In the US and elsewhere, trademarks may be renewed indefinitely, and revival developers have been sued for infringement of typeface names. The Library of Congress has never ...

Here is the procedure that I have successfully used to import a font and edit it in Illustrator. Use FontBook to import the ttf (true-type font) file onto your computer (you can easily delete it later if you don't want to pollute your fonts) Open Illustrator Select "Window->Type-Glyphs". At the bottom of the Glyphs window, you can select the font that ...
